Publisher's Summary

Research shows that increasing your muscle strength is the single most important thing you can do for your physical and mental health. This book shows you how - in just 30 minutes a day, once or twice a week - using the science-backed MSTF method.

The mixed messages we’ve received about exercise, aerobics, and mental and physical fitness are all misleading...or at least incomplete.

Clinical research shows that we lose muscle mass as we age, and that preventing muscle loss through strength training - more than cardio, stretching, or flexibility - is the key to staying active, healthy, and well. 

Deep Fitness introduces a proven, new approach to building strength and whole-body health: Mindful Strength Training to Failure (MSTF). This science-based method reverses muscle loss and improves overall strength in just one or two 30-minute sessions a week.

MSTF exercises are simple and effective, and can be done at home with resistance bands and bodyweight, or with the machines at your local gym. Using slow reps, MSTF marries mindful body awareness with proven strength-training techniques to help you become stronger at any age.

With more than 30 full-color exercises, Deep Fitness explains the science behind MSTF. It shows how the program boosts longevity and healthspan; aids weight loss and fat reduction; increases overall wellness and mental health; and can improve or reverse symptoms of:

  • Prediabetes and diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Alzheimer’s and dementia
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Osteoporosis
  • Other chronic illnesses

Appropriate for people of all ages and activity levels, the exercises and techniques in Deep Fitness are effective, straightforward, and sustainable, helping you enjoy the vibrant, fit, whole-body health you deserve.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
